If you eat potatoes when you are eating healthy try this low fat recipe. Spray your casserole dish with non stick spray. Slice your potatoes VERY thin (if you have a food processor). About 1 medium potato per person. Add thin onion slices mixed in well with the potato slices in the casserole dish. In a jar with a cover, put two cups of very cold skim or lowfat milk. Add a quarter cup of white flour, a touch of salt and liberal amount of black pepper to taste. Cover and shake well. Pour over your potatoes in the casserole dish. Add enough milk to barely cover the top of the level of the potatoes. Cut up 1 tablespoon of butter and mix the small pieces into the casserole dish in various areas. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Alternatively you can mix in 2 tablespoon of olive oil margarine cut up in pieces throughout the casserole. Blend so flour, milk and oils are well distributed. Cover with foil and place casserole on a large cookie sheet to catch spills. Bake at 325 farenheit about an hour and a half to two hours or until potatoes are tender. At the end you can sprinkle the top of the dish with grated cheddar or mozzarella or any other cheese of your choice. It will simply melt because of the hot potatoes. Share with family and friends. My father once told me my Scalloped Potatoes are just like his mothers! I was never able to meet my grandmother since she died before I was born, but I consider this the ultimate compliment, just because it seems to me grandmothers are the epitome of good homecooked comfort food. Gramma and Daddy, may you both rest in peace, and don't ever forget I love you!!

Excellent recipe! I love scalloped potatoes and I can NEVER get the right amounts of flour in it. Either I put too little or too much and they taste terrible! I will DEFINITELY be using this one! Thanks!

Sounds yummy and oh so easy! I would have to substitute a bit due to dietary restrictions. I would be using fat-free cheese and would probably not add the butter. I love scalloped potatoes.

You can always use diet margarine. The nice thing about this recipe is you can make many different substitutions and still get a really good dish in the end.

That sounds pretty easy I must try it. I have always had the packaged ones. I will try it with whole milk as like them really creamy.

Actually yes, and I should have included it. Sometimes I do and sometimes I use lots of real butter melted into the milk.
